ALTOONA â€” After making the trip by himself last season as the lone state qualifier, Punxsy wrestler Joel Bowers will have some company for next weekâ€™s trip across the state.
In his first season, the Chucksâ€™ Kaleb Young not only became a state qualifier but also won the 126-pound weight class of the AAA Northwest Regional in Altoona Saturday night.
Bowers (120) matched his regional finish from a year ago when he secured a consolation final pin.
CLARION â€” There are usually many reasons why a team loses only two games in an entire season.
On Saturday, two of the biggest reasons were guards Keserra Owens and Ali Rinfrette, who propelled the Bradford Lady Owls to their second District IX AAA girlsâ€™ basketball title in a row with a 56-31 final score over the Punxsy Lady Chucks.
â€śBradfordâ€™s two guards â€” Owens and Rinfrette â€” were the key today,â€ť said Punxsy head coach Randy Reitz. â€śThey played very well. Bradford is a solid basketball team.â€ť
CLARION â€” If you have never felt something slip through your fingers, the Punxsy Chucks boysâ€™ basketball team can tell you how it feels.
With control of the game throughout, Punxsy had the worst time to lose its mojo in the fourth quarter of the District IX title game and gave the championship to Bradford, 49-42, on Saturday at Clarion University.
